ICP Nurseries – Why Work With Us?

At ICP Nurseries we are totally committed to giving every member of staff full support and access to training.  All of our staff, during the first 6 months of their employment, and annually and/or biennially thereafter, complete a mandatory compliance training bundle – this includes fire safety, food safety and an array of health and safety modules.   Staff must also complete safeguarding training which extends to knowledge and understanding of E-Safety, FGM, Prevent and British Values. With the recent introduction of the GDPR 2018 all staff are also made aware of their responsibilities for data protection.

ICP ensure all staff are paediatric first aid trained and courses run regularly for refresher training and for new staff to participate in.  We have recently introduced a new first aid course – Mental Health first aid – which our Well-Being Champions have attended to give them the skills and knowledge in dealing with this sensitive subject.

We are proud to have been awarded a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognising the Best Places to Work in 2020, and being ranked 14th in the whole of the UK. The Employees’ Choice Awards programme, is based solely on the input of employees, who elect to provide feedback on their jobs, work environments and employers.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at ICP Nurseries full-time (More than a year)


    ICP is an incredible company to work for. I feel empowered and confident to carry out my job role. The support structure from every angle is fantastic and amongst the team the knowledge that is shared is phenomenal. This is shown at each Nursery and the experiences children are continuously receiving.
    I cannot say enough good things about the culture of the company and how I feel that children are at the heart of everything we do. The CEO is heavily involved and will always be on the end of the phone, she is super approachable and very considerate to all staff’s well-being.
    The incentives and benefits package offered at ICP are amazing and there are always opportunities for career progression.
    Hands down, this is the best company I have worked for.


    There are no cons for working at ICP

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ICP Nurseries (London, England) in December 2019.


    Very smooth with fantastic communication throughout . I contacted the nursery direct and we had a short discussion about my relevant experience and the manager told me a lot about the lovely nursery .
    I was then asked to send my CV and was invited to an interview a few days later .
